Nikon Coolpix S1000pj replacement will serve as a conventional projector

In the latest issues of Chasseur d'Images there is a small article that Nikon is preparing a replacement of the Coolpix S1000pj (this is the one with the built-in projector). The new version will provide the option to be connected to a computer and serve as an external conventional projector.

There were already some rumors that the Coolpix S1000pj is discontinued in at least one major retailer. Nikon also filed numerous patent application for various projector technologies over the past 12 months.

The next batch of Nikon Coolpix cameras is expected to be released in the first half of August. A new, high end Nikon Coolpix p&s camera is also rumored (to compete directly with Canon G11).

Chasseur d'Images are not afraid to publish rumors and they had some good leaks in the past. It is interesting to note that all they got this time is a p&s leak and nothing DSLR related.

    I hope this wasn’t the dslr that was supposed to be released today. .

  • Radis.Rut

    And ‘a conventional projector’ isn’t cheap.

  • Mike

    Or the “suprise” Thom Hogan et al., have been criptically talking about.

  • steve

    I don’t think that this is insignificant. Honestly, it is not longer a camera with a projector, it is a projector that has a camera. Being able to hook up all kinds of devices will turn out to make this a pretty popular product (for families and businesses).

    I am seriously considering switching to Canon and get their full frame. Nice to see Nikon are wasting their time working on “projectors”…WTF!!!

    • Jose

      Don’t wait, go Canon.

      Then, when Nikon has something better, hop back 😉

      PS: In between, I suggest you to take a few pictures 😛

  • A Canon G11 competitor would be interesting.

  • simon

    So Nikon will compete with the Canon G11, will they still be competitive with its replacement?

  • Kuv

    I’d buy the replacement if it had low MP and noise (at least a low as the G11), if it will sync with external flashes at at least 1/1000 and have an f/2 or faster lens.

    I’m really not asking for much. More like a Canon S90 with a hotshoe.
    I’d also like it to start the zoom at 24mm.

  • Simon

    I too would like to see a Nikon G11 competitor have a 24/24mm to at least 200mm lens with f/2. Having the card slot at the side and not with the battery would be nice.

    I touched the D4

    • rad

      and i liked it….

  • It seems most people are unimpressed by this latest offering by Nikon. I agree in a sense that if you try pack too many things into a device you loose out on the quality of the features. In my opinion why have a projector on a camera if it is not to the quality you would expect to project your images?

    Anyone wanting to project their images from a camera would benefit using a mini LED projector [see Adapt 305 / Adapt 450 Pro] which can connect via (mini) SD Card.

    They are not as expensive as ‘traditional projectors’.
